I won’t lie, when I first saw these skirted leggings online, I didn’t see a lot of style possibilities beyond yoga wear or running-errands-day options. Leave it to Karen to show me a thing or two. Here’s how she does Polished Casual.
So with that inspiration, my mind was opened to the possibilities. I could envision how I’d style skirted leggings for an afternoon of art gallery hopping….
especially when paired with this dramatic piece from Ronen Chen. When the lovely people at Ronen Chen offered to send me something from their current collection, I was immediately drawn to the Alona Buttoned Dress. I saw a lot of styling possibilities for this two-piece dress, including wearing the top layer open as a duster as I’ve done here. I love the marble print and the light weight, which works well for our climate. It also has possibilities as a travel piece to add some interest to neutral outfits, and is washable. The current collection at Ronen Chen includes dresses, tops, sweaters, jackets, bottoms and accessories.
I’m also sold on the skirted leggings as another stylish option to jeans or casual pants. They are incredibly comfortable, and the skirt provides more coverage than ordinary leggings. (Also available in Plus.)
Are there pieces that you’ve found were more versatile than you’d originally believed?
Edited to add: serendipity strikes…do go check out Alyson’s post today about leggings at That’s Not My Age.
